Cavan are the latest county who will be on the search for a new football manager after Terry Hyland announced that he is stepping down.

The Breffni men exited the Championship after they were beaten by Derry in Round 3A of the qualifiers.

After beating Kieran McGeeney's Armagh in the quarter-final of the Ulster championship, Cavan brought Tyrone to a replay at the semi-final stage before they were heavily beaten.

A hard-fought victory Carlow was quickly followed by the loss to Derry.

Cavan secured promotion to the top-flight of the National League this year but lost out in the Division Two final to Tyrone.

Hyland led the Cavan under-21s to back-to-back Ulster titles before taking over as senior boss in April, 2012.

He announced his retirement on RTE Radio One's Drivetime programme this evening.
